    I made a short video on the S3, no default settings in the camera were changed and it plays back perfect on the phone every time.
    after I upload it to my pc either over the air or wired and play it back it freezes and stutters badly on any media player I choose on the PC.
    Can anyone help and explain why this is happening.

    Thanks.

    We had that same problem with my dads laptop. Its pretty old n i dont think it could handle the definition.
    Think he used a programme to strip it down a bit

    P.s, i think Quicktime player worked a bit better than windows media player so maybe try some different players

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have tried different media players on my PC and my video uploads from my S3 are stuttering and freezing up.
    My PC copes with all the video files I upload from my Panasonic G3 ok but just won't play my uploaded S3 video files.

    anybody know why?

    Thanks

    The way the galaxy s3 encodes the video in hd it is sometime difficult to play. It should play on your Windows media player though. Do you have any video codec packs installed. It would help immensely. I have a few players but some will lag until you tell it how to decode the video.
    You can also lower the resolution to 1280x720. These videos will most likely be playable.
